Split lock washers or spring lock washers are specialty washers with a helix-shaped bend and a split through one point. This allows the washer to exert a spring force between the fastener’s head and the substrate, increasing resistance to vibration and friction. The non-flat design is ideal for increased protection against rotation and reverberations.

Spring Lock Washers Features & Specifications
Split lock washers are designed to secure fasteners such as screws or bolts with reinforced strength. These washers are split at one point, with one side twisting over the split to create an elevated rim. When fastened, the rim is compressed and creates a tight seal to lock the fastener firmly.
Split lock washers are available in various grades of stainless steel, including 18-8, 316, and A2. Fastener Solutions supplies spring lock washers in a large variety of both metric and standard sizes.
Benefits of Split Washers
Spring lock washers provide many benefits to various fastener applications.
The split-rim design makes the washers even more secure than standard flat washers. As such, split lock washers increase vibration resistance, preventing fasteners from becoming loose over time. Additionally, they help distribute the load of a fastener evenly to reduce damage to the fastener and the surrounding area.
Split lock washers are more cost-effective than similar fasteners like lock washers. Lock washers have teeth on the inner rim of the washer to secure fasteners, but they have an increased cost. Split lock washers provide excellent grip strength and vibration resistance while maintaining lower prices.
Because split washers can be used with a variety of screws and bolts, they are utilized for many applications across virtually all industries.
